Federal Executive Board Announces
Executive Rotational Detail Opportunities

Federal agencies should invest in and emphasize career development by supporting candidates who are interested in these opportunities. The Atlanta Federal Executive Board's executive rotation assignments are designed to bolster cross-agency exposure for high-potential employees. This cost-efficient program provides each participant an FEB rotation assignment to help develop or enhance specific leadership competencies identified by both the participant and his/her home supervisor. These competencies align with the Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs), and support the participant’s Individual Development Plan (IDP).

Specifically, the program aims to:
Please note, this is NOT a detail assignment. This is a termed support role at the council level that offers a unique leadership development opportunity for emerging leaders.
The Peak Performance for Aspiring Leaders Program was established in 2013 to target full-time federal employees grades GS/7 to GS/12 in order to offer opportunities for development and leadership training for aspiring leaders. The P3 program consists of 21 classes and workshop dates which are scheduled throughout the calendar year and delivered beginning in January and continuing through September. These classes concentrate on developing aspiring leaders by evolving their oral communication, written communication, public service, self-direction, problem solving, and decision making, along with many other leadership competencies vital for effective leadership.
The Atlanta Federal Executive Board (FEB) application period for the 2017 Peak Performance Program (P3) closed December 16, 2016. We are in the process of reviewing applications and will notify agencies when review is complete.
The Atlanta Federal Executive Board's 43rd Annual Federal Employee of the Year Awards Ceremony was held Wednesday May 11, 2016. This year’s event was a collaborative effort hosted by the Peace Corps, Eastern Region and the Atlanta Federal Executive Board. The awards program was a huge success, and the atmosphere was energetic and enjoyed by attendees from various agencies throughout the Atlanta federal community!
The awards program is a part of ongoing activities conducted by federal agencies in recognition of Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW), which has been celebrated during the first full week of May since 1985. Celebrated this year from May, 2-6 2016, PSRW is a time set aside each year to honor the men and woman who serve America as federal, state, and local employees. Throughout the nation and around the world, public employees use the week to educate citizens about the many ways in which government serves the people and how government services make life better for all of us.

A tremendous thank you again to the hosting agencies: Peace Corps, Eastern Region, Administration for Children and Families, the Internal Revenue Service, the Defense Contract Management Agency, and the Atlanta Federal Executive Board for hosting a fantastic event!
The 2016 SES Women in Motion event was another great year of networking, executive core qualification training and speed mentoring! The Atlanta Federal Executive Board and the Office of Personnel Management proudly partner each year to present this White House Equal Futures Initiative. This year's event was held on Thursday, April 21st and the 2017 event wait list is already growing rapidly!
During the morning session, over 100 GS 7 thru GS 12 attendees were inspired by the leadership journey of Mary Leftridge Byrd, Federal Security Director of the Transportation Safety Administration. They also learned the details of chartering their careers to the path of executive leadership during the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) session “Moving Ahead in the Federal Government – The OPM Leadership Competency Model.”
In the afternoon, more than 100 GS 13 thru GS 15 attendees were inspired by the leadership journey of FEB’s very own Chairwoman, Dr. Yvette Taylor. Additionally, participants had the opportunity to spend about 30 minutes in small group mentoring sessions with three SES members (highlighted in the picture above) after OPM’s presentation “ Executive Women in Motion: Pathways to the Senior Executive Service.”
This year, Atlanta has continued its track record of being the largest, most well-attended Women in Motion event in the nation! Therefore, be on the lookout for announcement and calls to serve for the 2017 event as it will surely fill-up fast.
A special thank you to the 2016 Women in Motion SES Mentors. It’s always a great event because of the time and wisdom you share!!!
